Trinity Downtown is committed to supporting our community and are privileged to be partnered with several renowned organizations in our city.

casa de oracion

Casa De Oracion:

Casa De Oracion is a community of faith, rooted in the love of God. They believe that worship is a lifestyle and needs to be fed with by scripture.  Their way of thinking is firmly grounded in the Word of God, the true guide for our lives.

Casa De Oracion believes that friendships founded on Christ are a consequence of having Jesus as our personal Savior, a life centered on God, based on the teachings and obedience of the biblical sound doctrine that He left us in the Bible, which is His faithful and true Word. Pastor Jose Flores, along with his wife Celina, have been in the pastoral ministry for 26 years and have established 15 churches in both Latin America and the United States.

Trinity Downtown and Casa De Oracion have partnered together to provide our congregation with a Spanish-Speaking service for our ESL community. Come and join us in experiencing God’s grace for yourself. There is a special place for you in our cozy home.

The Houston Symphony Chorus, under the direction of Betsy Cook Weber since 2014, is the official choral unit of the Houston Symphony and consists of highly skilled and talented volunteer singers. Over the years, members of this historic ensemble have learned and performed the world’s great choral-orchestral masterworks under the batons of Andrés Orozco-Estrada, Hans Graf, Christoph Eschenbach, Robert Shaw and Helmut Rilling, among many others.

In addition, the Chorus enjoys participating in the Houston Symphony’s popular programming under the batons of conductors such as Steven Reineke and Michael Krajewski. Recently, the ensemble sang the closing subscription concerts with the Prague Symphony Orchestra in the Czech Republic.

Singers are selected for specific programs for which they have indicated interest. A singer might choose to perform in all 45 concerts, as was the case in a recent season, or might elect to participate in a single series. The Houston Symphony Chorus holds auditions by appointment and welcomes inquiries from interested singers. For more info please visit our website.

Houston Bronze Ensemble:

The Houston Bronze Ensemble is a professional, auditioned, handbell ensemble made up of musicians from the greater Houston area. Known as Houston’s premier handbell choir, the ensemble performs regular concerts in the winter and spring as well as community, regional, and national events, weddings, and private parties. The group plays a wide variety of musical genres, always with the goal of EXCELLENCE. Founded in 1988, Houston Bronze Ensemble was started as an avenue for Houston area handbell directors to have a place to ring. A lunchtime meeting with only a napkin to write the names of those who might be interested is what started it all. The rest, as they say, is history. We celebrate over 30 years of bringing handbells to the Houston community and beyond.

Houston Bronze Ensemble recognizes the importance of building the future of handbell ringing. We offer a variety of educational opportunities designed to meet the unique needs of churches and schools who wish to build or improve their handbell program. These opportunities include workshops designed to meet the specific needs of a choir, mini concerts, and petting zoos, scholarships to students wishing to attend a college handbell event, and more. These are a sample of what we provide to the Houston area handbell community. For additional information on these programs, please visit our website, Facebook or Youtube Channel.

Houston Camerata:

Houston Camerata is dedicated to bring together those who love to sing with those who love to hear beautiful music, joyously embracing exceptional and interesting music through our performance of the choral repertoire of varied cultures and regions.

Camerata is an Italian word that refers to a group of individuals who enjoy similar interests and share a strong passion for a particular art form. This is a perfect description of our group because the singers are volunteers who come from all walks of life. Their common bond is that they share a passion for music and a talent for its performance.

To each concert, Houston Camerata will share with our audience music that is culturally diverse by performing folk as well as classical music, enlightening the public with our multi-cultural repertoire. For more information please visit our website.
